According to a report by WFAA's Brett Shipp on Sunday, former Kimball basketball star Keith Frazier had a failing grade changed to a passing one in order to graduate from high school.
Frazier was a McDonald's All-American and is currently a guard for SMU.
The WFAA report cites a Dallas Independent School District investigation that shows that Frazier had a failing grade in physics changed to a passing one a week after Frazier had completed his classes at Kimball. The change was made by a soccer coach and teacher's assistant Demarco King, who admitted to investigators that he had done so. It also states that Frazier did not have enough class hours to graduate but was allowed to do anyway.
The WFAA report also raises questions as to how much SMU knew about the grade change. Shipp said in the report that SMU said it knew the grade was changed but Frazier had completed in online course to make up the class. You can watch the full report in above.
When contacted by the SportsDayDFW.com, SMU offered this statement: "We have been made aware of an internal DISD investigation and we have to reserve comment until a copy is released to us."
